Are you ready for the 15 highest peaks in Northern Snowdonia - all over 3000ft - in 1 long day? Or take the time to savour them over 3 wonderful walking days in Snowdonia.
This may prove to be one of the most challenging routes you can follow in the UK mountains; over rocky and rough terrain in places. With over 4200m of ascent over 3 magnificent mountain ranges, you’ll be forgiven for wanting to be picked up by flying angels towards your last summit!
For the 24hr continuous effort, with prior training, preparation and commitment on the day – it is achievable in approximately 18-20 hours for fit and experienced walkers. Do not underestimate the preparation and stamina required for this endurance walk; it will require much training on similar, mountainous ground. And if you’re looking to spend a little more time on each mountain massif, look at our 3 day itinerary which suits more regular walkers looking for an exciting and rewarding 3 mountain days in Snowdonia.
Our costs include all staffing required, transport to and from event start/finish. For the 24hr event, costs include replenishment of water and snacks at two locations. Please ask for our Welsh 3000s Trip Notes for more details.
For the 24hr event - we set our sights on the Yr Wyddfa/Snowdon massif first, and descend steeply to Nant Peris. We then again ascend sharply to the Glyderau range and parade over its rocky plateau before another rocky descent to the Ogwen Valley for the final tough section over the remote Carneddau range. For the 3 Day event, we tend to follow a North – South journey, unless weather conditions may dictate we switch the sections around slightly.
Whatever option you choose – 24hr or 3 Day - there will be highs and more highs over rugged moorland, heaped boulders and narrow ridges. Majestic Snowdonia.
